Helping women survive
the trauma of cancer, one friend at a time.

Regardless of where you are in your journey, we are here for you. Helping you navigate this new and challenging path in your life with support and understanding.

“Breast Friends is a safe place for us to go to come back to life – which takes different things for different people. For some, it’s crying with those that understand, for some it’s art therapy. For me, the warrior workshops are particularly refreshing. They relax me, build my confidence back up, and provide the comfort of being around women who “see you” and let you know you’re not alone.”

OUR MISSION For 23 years our programs have ensured that no woman goes through cancer alone.
Breast Friends is a grassroots organization and is a unique resource for women, their families and friends. We have created a community within our programs that helps minimize the fear and isolation of cancer; all while helping them celebrate the joys of life.
Breast Friends has been a crucial part of my breast cancer healing journey. I've gotten to document myself and my family in the Bald is Beautiful program; I've received support from Ginger and Yvonne being apart of the breast cancer support groups and even received a beautiful wig for free when going through chemo! I can't thank them enough for their continued support!
This year's Survivors Retreat changed my life. To spend a weekend surrounded by such incredible Warrior Sisters when I was so fresh from treatment was the inspiration I had no idea I so desperately needed. It left me uplifted, strengthened and with a new group of women I am lucky to call sisters.
